the gates have been locked
12 months from now
my wild secret garden
will be reopened as a Nice Park
which I don't think we need more of
I wish I could make some case for the necessity of nude sun bathing in manhattan
but most of the people who used the beach just used it for cruising
ignoring the raspberries and mugwort
never climbing the trees
and hardly ever laying naked in the sun
. . . there were a few of us, though

it makes me want to run away to Europe again
where a friend wouldn't have to spend a night in jail just for drinking a beer by the river
where being naked in nature would be understood as a human right
and I doubt they'd be killing a thousand geese a year just to cut down the chance of planes engines getting clogged

maybe if we kill all of the nature
things will be perfect?

I'm hardly one to talk, though
can't sleep like any human being
lay down to sleep at sunset
blessedly I slept
but woke "in the middle of the night"
only to find it was 10:30
after gnawing on myself a bit
I went for a walk
got some food
and then set to work on learning new aspects of video editing

fascinating
I could feel the prospects of the project filling me with passion
to solve the problem
to create something
execute a vision
even though the steps necessary to manifest my idea seemed daunting
I knew it would just take time
just lots of focused time
which I don't have a good track record of implementing
but I can feel its possible

then the program crashes
and the birds start singing
so I can brush my teeth
and lay down
hoping for some easy rest
now that the sky is lightening

it will all be in the right place
(everything is in its right place)
( if the ceiling doesn't cave in )

i agree with everything you say in here........it sucks that we can't nude sunbathe here in manhattan.....
